probably not, it looks like there's memory corruption.
What the warning says (if I got it right) is that the controller claims to
have completed transfers from/to a descriptor (the controller gives us back the
descriptor's physical address), but this descriptor can't be found in the
list of active descriptors. So it looks like the controller wrote to
memory that has been freed and maybe already reused for something else
(or to some random physical address that was never used for ohci descriptors
in the first place).
this may be caused by a race condition between the ochi controller
walking the descriptors list and the CPU doing changes to the list ...
